Lamont Lyrics

Words & Media from the DU Lamont School of Music - Our Official Online Newsletter

I am delighted to welcome you to the premiere issue of the Lamont Online Newsletter! You are receiving Lyrics as part of the community that defines Lamont — students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents of students, Lamont Society donors, and our audiences. We will be settling into a publication rhythm of two newsletters annually, one in late summer and the other early in the calendar year.

In this first issue you will learn about new faculty at Lamont, the successful Met debut of an alumna, and the first winner of our Distinguished Alumni Award. With links to alumni news and the current concert schedule, there is much for you to discover.
